10/14/20 - Real Friends - 1 - Looking for Friendship?

In this phase, having good friends is incredibly important to teenagers. But finding real friendships is incredibly tricky (even as adults!). Often students don’t realize that having great friends is just as much about becoming as it is about finding. That’s why this week we’re encouraging students to take the steps toward friendship like Jesus and look to be the friend they are looking for.

Scripture: John 13:4-5,13
Main Point: Be The Friend You Want To Have

    me, etc.)
  4. How do you typically respond when a friend lets you down?
  5. What would it take from a friend for you to think, “Wow, that’s a real friend”?
